We all have certain sad love songs that remind us of special (and not-so-special exes), first loves and heartbreak. We put them on repeat late at night in our college dorm or drove around town listening to them on a special "Feel Sorry for Myself" mix CD.

As a child/teen of the '80s and '90s, I've watched a lot of kid shows that have left a lasting impression on me. Some of my fondest memories include: singing Ren and Stimpy's "Happy, happy, joy, joy" song, listening to Lion-O's deeply soothing voice on ThunderCats, studying the consistency of the green slime from You Can't Do That on Television, learning life lessons from Clarissa Explains It All and pretending I was a hero in a half shell just like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I've been watching horror movies for as long as I can remember. Whenever my father was around (which wasn't much), his idea of quality family time would be to sit in the living room and watch a boatload of movies from Blockbuster. The rating of the film didn't matter, so I always ended choosing R-rated horror flicks with the worst plot lines and makeup effects possible.

I was born in 1980, so it's hard for me not to like everything about that decade. I remember wearing suspenders that had silver Michael Jackson gloves attached to them, and blasting Madonna's "Like a Virgin" even though I was 5 years old and clueless about its meaning. I used to watch bootleg VHS copies of My Little Pony and He-Man that my sister would send my brother and I in the mail. And of course, I rocked the side ponytail like it was my job.
